One of the worst ways people describe themselves is sapiosexual. It means someone who is sexually attracted to intelligence.

Like Why? What is wrong with you?

Why can't your brain enter the picture here?

Anyone know any good non political comedy accounts to follow?

@Manisha_Awasthi Ok. I'm kind of from the opposite camp πŸ™‹β€β™‚οΈ. I like to think the obstacle is the path

Aren't Instagram influencers just Ads in human form?

Q: When is it appropriate to tell a woman what she should wear?
A: You're a fashion consultant and she's paying for your time.

@iamabhinav A social media that doesn't replicate the toxic behaviour that we see on the big commercial ones is possible. 50% of what we need are technical tools (and Mastodon is very good at this), but the other 50% is a community that actively discuss, works and collaborate to mantain their instance a nice place.

That's why I will always suggest the creation of local and community-based instances.

(PS - here you can find a complete introduction to Mastodon with many tips, partially derived from some of the toots you boosted rame.altervista.org/mastostart )

Really appreciate that most users (including me) are using the same DPs from the bird site. Much easier to both find and filter people

@Ca_Gi

Definitely share that sentiment. I'm also hoping for a different experience rather than the same thing on a different platform. πŸ‘

Mastodon is not Twitter
BUT THIS ALONE WILL NOT HELP...
...if you are still tangled in a Twitter-mindset!!

Are you still searching for the Trending Topics that will impose to everyone what is the thing about whom you "must" talk today?

Are you searching for "people to follow" instead of "people to interact with"?

Are you still planning time wasting things like hashtag wars instead of doing something real?

Are you searching for emotional and social gratifications by the number of retweets you received?

Are you still judging a post by the number of likes that received?

Are you still writing '"cool lines posts" for obtaining likes insted of writing interesting posts that stimulates discussion and interaction?

If so, pkease pay attention: there is still much Twitter INSIDE YOU.

(It takes some time to heal πŸ˜‰)
